Apply For Support

Application Process

The Junior League of Abilene has made some changes to its PAVE applications as the League has refined and refocused its community efforts on organizations and projects whose mission aligns with one or more of the following areas: (1) food insecurity; (2) health and hygiene; and (3) clothing and other necessary resources for low-income children in Taylor County. We’re dedicated to support our community agencies whose initiatives and programs have similar focuses. However, we also want to be sure and make space for our nonprofit and community partners that may not fit within this definition.

If your proposal isn’t within one of the above areas this year, you can still apply by telling us how your proposal will help benefit our community. Priority will be assigned to organizations that fit with our League mission. A maximum amount of $1,000 may be awarded per project or event. Still have a question? Send questions to:
